At last some pics of my 62G

I'm sorry for the bad images but i didn't have time as the camera isn't mine and my friend was in a rush.

It is about 5 months since I started my 62G aquarium.
The original setup included an adaptation of Diana Walstadt method but before i realized the atnk was filled with anaerobical substate so i changed the substate into gravel. Yes my plants grow in pure gravel. I know i have a lot of fish but i'm a fish maniac too. So here are the pictures.

Here is my aquarium from the middle of the room
This is the aquarium from the front but i zoom from the image above so it's blurr

This is the left side of my aquarium

This one was made on the 3rd month with a film camera

Here are my beautiful young angels.

I had more wood but i had removed it because i had no place for the plants. I addmit that the aquarium is a disaster but i had now cleaned it.
The water is filled with particles because some of the topsoil i put in the pot for the echinodorus (not the one used as center piece) was dug up by the catfishes.

I plan for a aquarium redo with the best substate that is in romania (that will be some sort of peat with lots of iron )(since i have to pay 5X for the flourite to get it to romania)
The light i have is 4*36W Osram daylight and 1*40 Aqua Glo (which is temporarily offline because i have problems with the ballast).
I can't find KSO4 (since enough no3 is provided by my fish) and also i can't find microelements so i add Tertra Flora Pride every 3-4 weeks. Water changes are about 7% once, twice a week.
I supply co2 from 4*2L DIY generator and i still expect the AM reactor M.
The filtration is provided by Eheim 2215.
I'll also buy a new canister filter ( if it is still there aprox 300km from home ) on 29 oct. (my birthday ).

So any comments aprecieted (on my aquarium not on my pics)!!!

The links are working great from here.

The tank looks pretty healthy from what I could see.

For better pictures. Take the pictures when the whole room is dark with just the tank lights on. Don't use a flash.
